Hello everyone! I'm taking part in a blog hop for Day 2 celebrating Simon Says Stamp's DieCember® 2017 release! There's giveaway info at the end so be sure to check out the whole post! :)
If you missed Day 1 of the blog hops you can check those out HERE <-----click! TONS of inspiration in there and giveaways as well!
For my cards today I decided to try out Ranger's alcohol inks for the first time. I was just playing around with them but thankfully was filming as I ended up being happy with the end result and ended up making 4 CAS (clean and simple) cards using several of the newly released DieCember® wafer dies!
Since I decided to create 4 cards I decided to keep them clean and simple and let the die cuts and alcohol ink background take centre stage.
For my first card I used the new Sun and Moon Collage die and the new Script Miss You die. I pulled out the previously released Space Journey die set to get the "ring" to make the "moon" a planet, and added some stars as well. I used Simon's new Silver Glitter paper for those as well as for my sentiments and I am in LOVE with this glitter paper. It really does die cut like a dream!!
I finished off the inside of my card with a sentiment from the SSS Shine On stamp set that I heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I then stamped images from the same set with Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink.
I ended up making 2 cards with the Evergreen Circle die as I had enough of the alcohol ink background and didn't want to waste any of it. I used the new Script Hello die on one card and the previously released Script Thanks die on the other.
I heat embossed sentiments from SSS's Big Scripty Greetings set to finish off the insides of both cards.
For my last card I used the new Sensational Snowflake Collage die, and combined it with the Happy Christmas sentiment set and the Christmas Blessings wafer die.
I finished off the inside of this card with a sentiment from the same Happy Christmas stamp set and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the products have little icons below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. You can hover over the icons and it will tell you what store that link will take you to. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
Now for the GIVEAWAY info!! Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from the comment sections on each hopper's blog post (thanks Heidi!!).
